There was discussed the attitude which the 

Trustees should take toward the transfer of the fertilizer 

and feed control work from the Experiment Station to the 

State Department of Agriculture, and it was 

VOTE D : That the Trustees of the Massachusetts 

Agricultural College do not oppose the turning 
over to the State Depart ment of Agriculture 
the executive or administrative features of 
the act to regulate the sale of commercial 
fertilizers, "being chapter 388 of the acts of 
1911 and chapter 220 of the acts of 1918, 
and the act to regulate the sale of commercial 
feed stuffs, being chapter 527 of the acts 
of 1912. The executive portion of said laws 
refers particularly to the registration of 
brands, the collection of analysis fees, the 
collection of samples, and the prosecution of 
violators of the acts. The Trustees, however, 
believe that it is for the best interests of 
all concerned that the chemical analyses re- 
quired by said laws and the publication of 
the results of the inspection be carried out 
as heretofore under the supervision of the 
Director of the Massachusetts Agricultural 
Experiment Station.

PRESENT : Messrs. Gleason, Clark, Ellis, Frost, 
Gerrett, Howe, Pollard, Richardson, 
Wheeler, Dr. Smith, and President 
Butterf ield. 

The Trustees met at 1:00 P.M. v/ith the Vice 
President, Mr. Charles A. Gleason, presiding. 

President Butterfield reported the results of 
the meeting of the Chairmen of Trustee Committees of 
July 18th, at which time the President had asked the 
Committee Chairmen to consider an invitation which he 
had received from the Foreign Missions Conference to 
join the China Educational Commission which is to leave 
the United States in August, 1921, and return the latter 
part of January, 1922. The question, after discussion, 
finally took the form of a request from the President 
that he be allowed a sabbatical leave of absence for a 
half year or until February 1, 1922. 

It was 

VOTED : To be the sentiment of the Trustees that 

the President be granted a leave of absence 
from August, 1921, to February 1, 1922.

VOTED : That the absence be with full salary because 
of the fact that this absence will be con- 
sidered a sabbatical leave. 

VOTED : To request Commissioner Smith to present to 
the Governor the considerations which had 
led the Trustees to take the above votes. 

Informally it was expressed as the unanimous 
opinion of the Trustees present that it would be exceed- 
ingly desirable if the salary of the President during 
this leave could be provided from other than State funds. 

The President stated that the latter part of 

June, after consultation with certain of the Trustees, 

he had authorized the military commandant to requisition 

the War Department for twenty-four additional horses, which 

have since arrived. This necessitates the addition of 

either a shed to the cavalry barn, the estimated cost of 

v/hich is $1,000, or an extension of the barn, estimated 

to cost 53,000. It was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer to build an addi- 
tion to the cavalry barn at a cost not to 
exceed $3 ,000.

To the Associate Alumni of the

In behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 
the Trustees of the Massachusetts Agricultural College 
accept with deepest gratitude and sincere pride the 
munificent gift of the beautiful Alumni Memorial Building 
from the Associate Alumni. We find it exceedingly diffi- 
cult to find words that will give adequate expression to 
the intensity of our appreciation. When the proposal 
to erect so costly a memorial was made, we frankly confess 
that it seemed to some of us beyond achievement. That so 
comparatively small a body of Alumni should have conceived 
it, financed it, built it, and equipped it seems almost 
like a miracle - a dream. 

This memorial is significant because it is a 
fitting expression of the generosity and sacrifice that 
the Alumni are willing to make, not alone for their 
kinship with the noble boys who died, but for their love

for Alma Mater. It is another evidence that the Alumni 
of this College are a substantial, real and vital force 
in the life of the College. 

We recognize it and welcome it as a prophecy 
of continued and increasing interest and service. Ho 
college can maintain permanently an honorable place or 
do a great work without loyal interest, service, and 
sacrifice by its graduates. You came not merely to take, 
but to give. 

All such memorials are greater even than they 
seem. Beyond the recognition of the glorious deeds of 
the boys there will be the unceasing inspiration to the 
love of country and to vigilance in the protection of 
her liberties. Above all, this Memorial Building will 
be to everyone as an embodied nobleness pronvpting day by 
day every son and daughter of the College to a high plane 
of living and thinking and achieving. 




V/ith such thoughts and feelings we accept this 
noble and inspiring gift. We thank you and we thank all 
those others,- students, faculty, and friends who through 
you have translated a great vision into a useful as well 
as beautiful temple. 



On recommendation of the Committee on Course 

of Study and Faculty, it was 

VOTED : That Dr. James B. Paige, now absent on 

account of illness, be continued on full 
pay until April 50, 1922.

Parm Committee with power the problem of fi- 
nancing such an exhibit. 

Mr, Nathaniel I. Bowditch, Secretary and Treasur- 
er of the Bay State Agricultural Society, presented the 
following memorandum: 

The Bay State Agricultural Society gives to 
the Trustees of the Massachusetts Agricultural Col- Gift of Bay 
lege the sum of $10,000 and some $500 of accumulated 
interest, to be held by them and to be known as the 
J. D. W. Prench Pund. 



It is our desire, as Mr. Prench was especial- 
ly interested in Dairying and Porestry, that the 
Trustees use the income from this fund, so that in 
their judgment it will do the greatest good to stu- 
dents in dairying and its allies, also Porestry, 
either as scholarships, loans, or prizes. We should 
prefer, however, that when it seems most advisable, 
the income be used to help pay the expenses of a 
judging team to go from the Massachusetts Agricul- 
tural College to the National Dairy Show or National

The following recommendation was received from 

the Cabinet relative to charges being made by the institu- 

Professional 
tion for professional services rendered to individuals, it Services 

being understood that this will supersede the present prac- 
tice followed by the Experiment Station: 

"The policy of the institution should not be 
passive or merely responsive, but should be aggressive. 
It is our task not only to meet the requests of those who 
come to us for help, but also to promote the adoption of 
sound practice. If this be true, we must undertake many 
pieces of work and services for which no charge can easily 
be made. 

1. It is recommended that the institution make 
no charge for services except those which are essentially 
commercial and of benefit limited to the individual. 

2. In order, however, that the different branch* 
es of the institution may operate consistently, it is 
further recommended that these different branches define

at present on a temporary basis and it was 

VOTED : To approve the plan as presented "by Director 
Millard. 

Mr. Gerrett reported that further consideration 
had "been given "by himself and Mr. Gleason, in consultation 
with certain members of the staff to the problem of out-of- 
state travel, and that no change in the present method of 
approving such requests is recommended. It was 

VOTED : To approve the following as the basis upon 

which requests for out-of-state travel should 
be considered: 

Travel at state expense should be undertaken only 
because of benefit to accrue to the Commonwealth; not 
as a personal perquisite or dispensation. Out-of- 
state travel differs from intra-state travel only in 
the presumption of greater cost (which often times is 
not the fact,) and because of statutory requirement 
for authorization by the Governor and Council. 

Necessity for travel will vary as between sta^e 
departments, institutions and employees. 

The gains to the Commonwealth should be the 
determining factor in authorizing out-of-state travel. 
The decision on specific requests for out-of-state travel 
should be on the basis of values accruing to the state, 
and not on a mathematical computation of how long, it is 
since the person was last allowed to travel out-of- 
state. 

Travel of members of the college staff may well 
be classified under three headings as follows: 

CLASS I . Travel to attend conferences called b 
agencies which cooperate financially with the Co.J.ege; 
attendance at which conference is a matter of moral or 
contractual obligation. 

CLASS II . Travel to secure information or 
materials necessary in organized project work.

CLASS III . Travel to attend scientific and other 
meetings from which benefit to the Commonwealth 
will come through increased proficiency to those 
attending. 

The question was raised as to whether the pro- 
posed salary increase for C. J.Fawcett of the Extension 
Service Staff is warranted. The reason for the increase 
was explained "by Director Willard. 

At 12:45 P. M. the Trustees adjourned to Draper 
Hall for luncheon and for the continuation of their 
executive session. 

The President raised the question as to the 
obligation of the College to observe certain legal holi- 
days insofar as the holding of class exercises is involved. 
It was the opinion of the Trustees that the College should 
observe all legal holidays.

244-A

Amherst, Mass, 
May 16, 1924 

To the Trustees of the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College 

Gentlemen: _ 

I hereby resign as President of the College that 
I may accept the presidency of the Michigan Agricultural 
College, and I ask to "be released September 1. 

There is a rare chance in Michigan to do a gree.t 
piece of progressive educational work in a college already 
•well-equipped, and perhaps an even more alluring opportuni 
to forward immediately a vitally important state-wide study 
and organization of the pressing problems of agriculture, 
food supply, and country life. 

It is possible that these evident opportunities, 
enforced by a unanimous and hearty invitation from my Alma 
Mater - the oldest of our agricultural colleges - to assume 
its leadership at a strategic moment in its history, and as 
well to return to my native state, might be thought to con- 
stitute a sufficient explanation of my decision. But there 
are special reasons involved that in my judgment have an in- 
timate bearing upon the future of this College, and if I 
failed to tell you of them I would not be as frank with your 
Board as it has been my habit to be, nor fully loyal to the 
College. 



President 

Butterfield's 

resignation 



244-B 



TRUSTEE 



THE MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 

Let me first confess to a growing feeling that 
whatever contribution I might make to this college has been 
made and that a separation from the institution in the not 
distant future was probably inevitable. I also admit that 
I have chafed under the limitations to institutional develop- 
ment imposed during the past few years. I am not critical of 
the Legislature nor of the Executive. They have been 
generous. There has been a real demand for keeping all state 
expenditures to as low a point as possible. But this does 
not alter the fact that the College could be of vastly 
greater service to the State, and continued connection with 
it would be far more inspiring, if it were permitted to 
erect necessary buildings, establish importsnt courses, push 
forward greatly needed research, and meet the needs of many 
more of the youth of the State by enlarging the area of its 
activities: these phrases describe precisely the present 
prospects in Michigan. 

But far more important and serious than this 
consideration is the present administrative oversight of 
the College. For nearly five years I have been compelled 
to work under a system of State House control which, as 
applied to the College, I regard as wholly unsound in 
principle, in practice highly detrimental to efficiency and 
true economy, as well as seriously discouraging to my co- 
workers on the staff. 

Repeated protests have brought no relief. Last 
January I stated to you in my annual report that the limit 
of endurance had be-, n nearly reached. I then hoped that

THE MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 

steps would be taken in the direction at least of restoring 
to your Board the responsible management of the institution. 
I am confident that eventually this will be done, for common 
sense will prevail. It is worth noting that a recent deci- 
sion of the Supreme Court of Michigan confirmed the rights 
af the governing board of the Michigan Agricultural College 
as a constitutional body, with complete authority for the 
control of both the policies and the expenditures of the 
institution. 

But our institution is still in the grip of a 
system of centralized control which takes all the zest as 
well as most of the promise out of the ta^k of leadership. 
If imposed bureaucratic rnetho s, constant annoyance from a 
multitude of petty requirements, the minimizing of effective 
responsibility for both expenditures and policies, or even 
personal humiliation, were a necessary price exacted of the 
executives of the College in order to serve fundamental 
college interests or those of the Commonwealth, one should 
not complain. But these restrictions are not necessary to 
the effective management of the College, they do not result 
in essential economy, and I am not willing longer to submit 
to them . 

I have constantly done everything in my power 
when condemning the system to avoid being critical of the 
officials who are responsible for enforcing the system. For 
example, I believe the present Chairman of the Commission on 
Administration and Finance has approached his thankless duties 
with firmness and courage, and in our case at least with

trustee marked personal courtesy. I bear him no grudge whatever; 
although I will say I think a radically different mode of 
handling the problem even under present laws would have been 
far more effective practically and certainly much less irk- 
some to us. We would have eagerly welcomed constructive 
suggestions from the State House as to methods of internal 
management that would make for economy and e f ficiency - these 
suggestions we have rarely had during all the years of my 
connection with the College. 

Ana so, too, in the case of the Department of 
Education. The Commissioner, put into a very difficult and 
even delicate situation, has been considerate, helpful, fair; 
yet I cannot believe that the present arrangement can ever 



.1. 



« 



make for good administration. The law placed your Board in 
tiie Department of Education and has been construed to mean 
that the Commissioner of Education has a large measure of 
responsibility for the College. He thus comes to be regarded 
as in many ways not only the virtual head of the institution, 
but even as possessing final authority concerning it. I told 
the "Webster" Commission three years ago that "the College 
should be kept in the Department of Education but the rela- 
tion so adjusted that the Trustees retain final responsibility 
and autliority". I also said to the same body that "frankly 
I think if some suoh program au the abov... cannot be carried 
out the Trustees should be abolished and the Commissioner of 
Education made the responsible administrative head. Logically

the presidency should also be abolished and a principalship 
established, - the principal b eing immediately responsible

to 1iie Commissioner of Education, I believe there is no 
workable middle ground between these two alternatives". 
But I am bound to say, with all respect and regard for the 
present Commissioner, that educational management of the 
College by a single state official is no less to be depre- 
cated than its fiscal management by a central administra- 
tive board. 



while my personal reaction to the present scheme 
of administrative control has been decisive with respect to 
my own further connection with the College, this of course 
is not the main reason for the seriousness of the situation 
It is my deliberate judgment that the whole future of the 
College is at stake. The Commonwealth must decide very 
soon whether it wishes a first rate or a third rate college 
on this campus. I am certain that the College can never 
be maintained at a high point of efficiency, much less 
develop as it should, until your Board once more has full 
authority. You should determine expenditures once the 
Legislative appropriations become available; emplo y members 
of the staff and fix their salaries; pass upon educational 
policies, - perform in fact all the functions of a 
responsible governing body. 

I have no desire to hide my satisfaction with 
the prospect of relief from a situation that has become 
almost intolerable. Yet I leave with keen regret. For 
eighteen years now I have served your Board, and I bear

sincere and grateful testimony to your genuine interest, 
your keen intelligence, and your unswerving loyalty, I 
have always been impressed with, your high sense of

period could not have been accomplished had I not had 
your constant support. The personal ties with you as 
individuals are strong and will abide through life as a

It is not easy to contemplate leaving this 
College, its wonderful student body, its competent 
faculty, its loyal alumni, its growing constituency, 
its significant problems. The root3 of attachment to 
the institution and to all connected with it have gone 
down deep. The College has a good record and a great 
future. I am proud to have had a part in its upbuilding.

RESOLUTIONS Oil THE RESIGNATION OF 



President Kenyon L. Butterf ield 



BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



IN ACTUAL MEETING, JUNE 9, 1924 



The resignation of Keny on L. Butt erf ield, 
President of the Massachusetts Agricultural College, 
has brought to its Board of Trustees a keen sense of 
personal regret, and a deep realization of the great loss 
which the College and the Commonwealth suffer thereby. 

He goes to accept a call to become President 
of his Alma Mater, the Michigan Agricultural College; and 
we are assured and well appreciate that the entire staff 
of instruction and administration of this, our 
Massachusetts College, its ever loyal alumni, and its 
many friends in the various walks of life, join in a 
general regret and deep concern because of his going. 
Even more, however, are we and they grateful for the 
living fruits of his labors here. 

His eighteen years of faithful service to this

Commonwealth and its institutions have brought the 
College to a stage of development and efficiency, with a 
well balanced coordination of its various activities, 
which give it high rank, and in some respects distinct 
leadership, among similar institutions of the country; 
and to himself have come merited distinction among 
leaders in liberal education relating broadly to the 
field of agriculture, soil production and rural community 
life. 

President Butterfield came to this service 
with the clearly defined purpose to carry on, from the 
point to which his predecessors had brought the work, the 
further development of the ire titution as a strictly 
Agricultural College, on broad lines in conformity with 
the objects clearly set out in its Federal charter, 
under the Morrill Act of 1862, and as specifically 
adopted and re -affirmed by Massachusetts in the Act of 
April 29, 1863, under which the College was established. 

He brought to the accomplishment of that 
purpose, qualifications of a high order, embodying: 

An understanding born of thorough train- 
ing and experience, wide and varied, in his native 
State of Michigan and elsewhere, with vision to 
perceive the needs and to devise the means for

attaining the objects to "be arrived at; 

A rare capacity in the organization of 
projects to "be attained and carried on, with the 
equal virtue of patience to wait upon the fortunes 
of opportunity, with constancy to the end; and 

Ability to discover and enlist capable 
associates and assistants for the work to be done, 
and to inspire their best efforts and effective 
cooperation for its successful attainment. 

Such have been the ideals and spirit underlying 
his methods and his hopes, and from them have come results 
and benefits not alone to this Commonwealth and its people, 
but broadly to states and peoples world-wide,- benefits 
now to be seen and known in part only, and which have yet 
to be realized in full measure. 

What President Butterfield has done for the 
State of Massachusetts remains and will live through its 
permanent benefits to the College and the Commonwealth, 
and through a growing realization of those benefits in the 
minds and hearts of its people. 

What Massachusetts loL : es through his going, 
Michigan, its College and people will gain through his 
coming to take up their work, on foundations firm, and 
with opportunity ample and secure for the effective

accomplishment of their high purpose. 

Y/e shall ever remember with grateful apprecia- 
tion his unfailing courtesy, his genial cordiality and 
frank candor in all Ms relationships, official and 
social. Y/e also extend to Mrs. Butterfield our high 

appreciation of her ever gracious hospitality and cordial 

attaching 
participation in the many social courtesies to the presi 

dential household. 

And with them both, go and will ever be, the 

best wishes of this Board, with the friendly hope and 

the confident assurance that the ideals and fidelity 

of purpose which have marked their eighteen years of 

devoted service to this College, to its community life, 

and to this Commonwealth, will bear rich fruitage, just 

and true, in the service of their own native State.
